With Mothers’ Day and International Women’s Day, March has been a big celebration for the hardworking women in our lives, whether they are our own mothers or strong successful women we admire.
Badenoch & Clark, and the wider Adecco group support these women in many ways, we pride ourselves on supporting the working mothers in our office and supporting our female employees to reach their potential and take leadership roles within the group.
Badenoch & Clark, as part of the Adecco Group is delighted to release the Winter edition of Labour Market Outlook, which is produced in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). The quarterly report provides a set of forward-looking labour market indicators, highlighting employers’ recruitment, redundancy and pay intentions.
The GTCI is a report produced on an annual basis by The Adecco Group, together with international business school INSEAD and Tata Communications. The Index lists countries in terms of ‘talent competitiveness’, according to a range of variables.
The report also contains the GCTCI (Global Cities Talent Competitiveness Index), which ranks cities around the world on their talent competitiveness.
Each year the report focuses on a theme relevant to talent competitiveness, giving tangible examples of good practice and where improvements can be made.

It was a busy year for HR professionals – tribunal fees were abolished, gender pay gap reporting regulations came into force, and GDPR became the hottest buzzword as HR teams scrambled to review employment contracts, privacy notices and appoint data protection officers in a bid to avoid fines when regulations come into force in May 2018.
Historically, Q3 is a relatively quiet period for recruitment as the summer holidays impact the availability of hiring managers – evidenced by a 22% drop in the vacancies seen by our Birmingham division for accountancy and finance roles in the Midlands.
